Hubby, R and Z are travelling to Algeria in a week’s time inshaAllah. We’ve been talking about whether we should all go as a family, or just hubby or hubby with R and Z or hubby and just R. We’ve explored lots of options and due to quite a few things that I need to get done in the next few weeks, we’ve decided that R and Z are going to go with their father and live in the Berber Algerian mountains for 4 weeks! My youngest brother in law got married last year and so the city family flat in the centre of Algiers now belongs to him and his new wife. My parents in law moved out to their place of birth in the Berber mountains. I’ve been there and it is breathtakingly beautiful mashaAllah. You can ‘touch’ the clouds and the water is so pure it can be drunk from the springs flowing from the mountains. There are donkeys, cows, goats, sheep, horses (R is going to be soooo happy!) I’m really happy for them but my heart is aching already.
As a home edder, it is so difficult to be separated from your children. I’ll have Y with me and I think he’ll really feel it too as he always has someone to play with.
Mmm…I’ve got a lot to do whilst they’re away but somehow I feel as though I don’t have anything to do..
I’ll miss them so much…I’m beginning to regret letting them go. Mmm…
